  River Wharfe Fishing - Yorkshire Dales Fly Fishing
The River Wharfe is probably the most famous of the Yorkshire rivers, maybe because of the top quality fly fishing it provides, or perhaps because it is surrounded by the most outstanding scenery.
The River Wharfe could be considered more of a trout stream than the River Ure or River Nidd, but it does have good stocks of grayling in places, particularly from Ilkley downstream and in decreasing numbers upstream of Ilkley.
The River Wharfe at Bolton Abbey is particularly suitable for the beginner and for instruction in river fly fishing, with well defined pools, relatively easy wading and good stocks of trout and grayling that respond to most methods of fly fishing.

 Wharfe Bridge
Wharfe Bridge claims that not only do the proposals improve the flooding situation for the town, they also provide economic and social benefits to the community that can’t be met by an alternative scheme.
Wharfe Bridge will be appealing the decision by LCC and will continue to work with its project designers in pursuit of making the development a reality.
Wharfe Bridge worked closely with specialist flood risk consultants JBA Consulting, to guarantee that appropriate flood risk mitigation measures would be incorporated into the development, ensuring that not only the development itself would be protected, but also would reduce flood risk to a nearby residential area.

 burnsall
The fishing on the River Wharfe at Burnsall is about 25 miles from Leeds and 45 miles from York.
The River Wharfe in this area is very much a free stone spate river running mainly off limestone-dominated land, this makes it quite fertile with good populations of aquatic invertebrates.
Again because of public access to the river banks in places we would urge clients to fish mid week if at all possible and keep away during the weekends and/or public holidays for the best fishing and to capture the tranquillity of the dale.

 Fact Sheets
Moorland gripping is believed to have contributed to an increase in flashiness of the main river, that is the sudden rise and fall of the water level, which in turn may have increased
This means that until sedimentation of the grip is complete, grip blocking is likely to reduce the rate of river run-off during minor storm events, when the ground is not already saturated, but grip blocking is likely to have minimal impact on run-off during major flood events.
The Environment Agency (Dales Area) and Leeds University are hoping to carry out research in relation to the River Wharfe catchment, (where there is better data) to see if the anecdotal evidence is backed up by empirical data, and to model the various factors to predict likely effects.

 Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority - Nature in the Dales - Rivers and Streams
Many of the Dales rivers flow across limestone bedrock and are nationally important for their populations of Atlantic white-clawed crayfish with the National Park forming an important stronghold for this species in the UK.
In particular the signal crayfish is rapidly displacing the native Atlantic white clawed crayfish in the Rivers Wharfe and Ure and the water vole is now virtually extinct in the Dales due to habitat loss exacerbated by predation by the American mink.
Many of the species that live in and alongside rivers are, however, sensitive to disturbance (otters and breeding birds, for example) and it is essential that access is managed to ensure that a significant amount of riverbank is kept free of disturbance.

 Grayling Fishing Yorkshire Dales Rivers
The Yorkshire Dales are renowned throughout England for the Grayling fishing available on the River Wharfe, River Ure, River Nidd, River Ribble and River Swale.
The best of them is the River Nidd, which has very good stocks of grayling, though these tend to be slightly smaller than the grayling of the Ure.
The Yorkshire Dales rivers provide the perfect habitat for grayling and grayling fly fishing and they extend the flyfishers year right through the autumn and winter.

 Deadly fish virus found in UK rivers | Practical Fishkeeping magazine
According an Environment Agency report, Tench Rhabdovirus antibodies have been detected in seven rivers, including: the River Trent in Nottinghamshire; the River Teme in Worcestershire; the Ridd Nidd and the River Wharfe in Yorkshire; the Witham in Lincolnshire; the Douglas in Lancashire and the River Wye in Derbyshire.
Several other rivers have also been tested and have provided negative results, including the river adjacent to a fish farm where an outbreak of the virus occurred last year.
The virus was first isolated in Germany in the 1970s and caused widespread fish kills in the tench and bream populations of the River Bann in Northern Ireland in the early 1980s.

It doesn't tend to feed on the bottom of rivers and so is tolerant of deep waters and fast flowing streams.
They are seen along the length of the river and on the reservoirs, with those in Washburn and, in particular, Lindley favoured by winter migrants since the early '90's.
It seems that breeding continues to be restricted to the river and there has still been no records of breeding in the Washburn (so that sightings there tend to be restricted to between October and May).

These were places where the river or stream ran shallowly and the surface of the riverbed might be paved or at least worn flat.
Such fords could be dangerous as William Camden wrote in 1582 after fording the River Wharfe “…for, it hath such slippery stones in it that a horse can have no sure footing on them, or else the violence of the water carryeth them away from under his feet”.
